  Dionysius1: Go on then <WPE>. Is it the same one SF suggests?

  Dionysius1: Fair enough though. Like in a lot of these situations I could find the move, I just didn't know why it was a good one. That's something I must try and do more: find sound ideas, and then the moves that go with them. But then I watch the top GMs playing rapid and at the end it's like one move after another.

You know what's good though (or seems so after a half bottle of rioja)? I don't have to beat myself up about "I'll never play like that". It adds a lot to my life that some people CAN, and that with a few aids I can understand how it works.

Ah chess. For me, as a sport it's a great waste of time. As an art form it's a great investment.

I'm thinking of starting a grey haired rock group called Plato and the Absolutes.

Sep-11-18  WorstPlayerEver: I'm trying to study the patterns, it keeps on amazing me. Especially after the arrival of Stockfish 9.
